    I have a new Charter Arms Pitbull and after alot of dry firing the ejector rod head (part number 25 in the parts diagram) starts to come loose and makes it difficult to open the cylinder.

    I'm thinking an easy solution to this is to use blue loctite on it. Is this ok or is there some reason why I shouldn't do this?

    I have done it years ago and have had no problem.

    Go for it. It's also not uncommon with some Taurus/Rossi models, including my M66.

    Remember to clean and degrease the threads before using Loctite.
